French Theme


I hadn't realized how much of a French influence is around me from my Books , Prints, Shoes, Cooking and Music there is definitely a French Theme going on even my favourite Actor is French the fantastic Jean Reno.

The Print I wake up to ever morning above the Fire place in the Bedroom is Renoirs "By the Seashore" I bought it about 30 Years ago and I just love it it comes with me to every place I live, just looking at it makes me smile.

In the Art Gallery of South Australia we have a lovely little painting that Renoir did of his son Claude called Coco I always stop and look at it when I visit it is such a sweet painting.

It's a lovely painting. I also have a Renoir print over my bed - it is one that my dad bought for my mum many years ago as it reminded them of me!I'm not sure what it is called but it is a little girl with long red hair.

Beautiful paintings! When I was a girl my cousin had a Renoir print of a girl with long hair in a blue dress over her bed, I used 2 lay awake and look at it for hours~it was so beautiful! I love French influence too~books, movies, actors, FOOD, and art!
Thanks for sharing!
Have a wonderful week!
